    Something to look at. There is a plugin named Widget Visibility Without Jetpack by Eduardo Larequi at https://wordpress.org/plugins/widget-visibility-without-jetpack/ that lets a person control what pages a widget appears on. Its helpful and would be a great feature if incorporated into any theme.

    Their description:

    Control what pages your widgets appear on. Based on Widget Visibility module, from Jetpack plugin, http://wordpress.org/plugins/jetpack/.

    Thanks

    Sushil,

    As a suggestion, since most themes provide for being responsive, the static header should have a setting under Customizing and then Header Image to be able to select it being responsive or not so that it resizes accordingly.

    When having to use a widget to present the header, there is extra minute work to display header image and banner sidebar on the front page only.

    Many themes have that header image responsiveness by default and I feel that adding this would really enhance this Flat Responsive theme.

    I also wanted to add that I have a banner graphic to use as a header image and it is 2400 × 900. The image does not scale by default when using as an image header. I also tried 2400 × 770 and still it is way outside the container area. Only when adding it to a text widget does it resize accordingly.

    Thanks

    These demos are working for me now at least so I appreciate your time in correcting the issue with that. Hopefully its resolved for everyone experiencing issues previously with viewing demos.

    Ok, it took me a bit to understand Styled Portfolios and I’m still trying to pick up on it more so these are simply my comments on understanding and use. I urge any other users to chime in as well as that can only make these themes that much more awesome for us to use.

    First and foremost, it appears that each “individual” item you add under Styled Portfolio is treated as a singular item within the portfolio you will present for viewing. Think of it like this, if you need six graphics in your portfolio you will need to add an item for each one.

    Only items under Styled Portfolio that have a featured image specified appear in the final presented portfolio.

    When creating a page to contain the portfolio, the number you specify in the shortcode tells how many of the items to show and will show them in the order they appear in the Styled Portfolios list from top to bottom.

    Examples:

    style_portfolio total=”2″ will show two items in list order fom top to bottom
    style_portfolio total=”5″ will show five items in list order from top to bottom

    You can use the portfolio shortcode in a widget but the widget needs to be full spanning like Insetfull and then a Text widget. if used in a widget meant for different formatting it will not look right.

    When you click on one of the portfolio items from as it appears on your website it will open to a new page with the graphic on the left and text formatted to the right which includes the title as defined by the individual Styled Portfolio item and any text content it has.

    I do not know of any way to specify individual portfolio items from the list out of their natural top to bottom order other than setting the ones not intended to be used to Draft or removing the featured image so its just not included in the portfolio being viewed. This would be a nice to have though as more than one portfolio may be used.

    If each item could be singularly specified that would add some flexibility, as an example, style_portfolio item=”5″ and perhaps even include some formatting parameters.

    Anyways, that’s my nickels worth during my use of this theme. Hope my notes help someone along the way.

    For added comment, with regard to broken graphic links in the demo data, there are 119 broken links.

    Failed to load resource: net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED

    Most with this URL, just different graphic names (.jpg and .png):

    http://demo-data.demo.styledthemes.com/flat-responsive/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/gallery_two_6.jpg

    The widget_banner_position item, in code, is within the div class=”textwidget”

    img src=”http://demo-data.demo.styledthemes.com/flat-responsive/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/banner_wide.jpg” title=”widget_banner_position”

    After changing the Banner Wide widget, under Widgets of the theme customization settings, THAT is actully mobile friendly.

    img src=”http://www.mywebsite.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/2.jpg” title=”widget_banner_position”

    Establishing a header image under Header Image in the customization settings does not appear to be mobile friendly and is gawdawful large, taking up quite a bit of real estate on mobile.

    I hope these notes are useful to others using this theme.

    Simple suggestion. It would help if in either the Readme.txt file, or the email received after purchase, there was a brief explanation on unzipping the ZIP file first and then pointing WordPress at the folder to upload since in most cases there is a master template and a child template. That would cut the frustration of receiving the style.css dialog.
